The Miracle of Imuris

Hello Everyone...
Well it is hard to believe but I only have 15 days left...Truely I dont feel like anythings going to change...I feel like another transfer is going to arrive and I will stay in this little town for atleast another transfer before God sends me to another town here in Sonora...After so long away from your family you accept that wont see them to soon haha...So I guess what will happen in 2 weeks...

We are having lots of success here in Imuris...The Branch is really growing...I cant even start to explain how much really it has grown since we got here...Here is one example before we got here about 13 people were attending this little branch...we arrived and had a meeting with the District President in Nogales..he said that this little branch is at risk of closing there just wasnt enough people going to church anymore...We kind of got scared...Since then we have worked our hardest, prayed many times every day, fasted up to 2 times a week, and have hoped for the best for this little branch....Yesterday in Church we had an attendance of 42 people...the little room filled as everyone bore their testimonies. The Maintenance people told us today that they will be fixing up our little house were we have our Sunday meetings...putting in artificial grass, tile, new paint, and maybe even taking out a wall to make our Sacrament Room bigger haha We have just seen this little town turn around...We know that our efforts were just a fraction of the work needed to have the results that we have seen here...We know that God is greatly blessing this town and all of the members here...

Saturday night we had a Branch Activity watching Meet the Mormons! No one has seen that movie here so we thought we would do a huge activity and invite everyone...All the members brought a snack and a friend :) Again our little Sacrament room filled up with lots of members and about 15 investigators...It was great...Elder Hyatt and I were busy running around refilling popcorn bowls and cups of Mango water...Boy were we tired...Finishing the movie when it was showing the scene about the missionary leaving his home for 2 years...Everyone just started crying...After, everyone was saying good bye to us with tears in their eyes just wanting to know more about the wonderful message that we share for 2 years...
I sure love this work...Cant imagine my life without it....
Love you guys
